    For gamers, Windows 10s DirectX 12 is the focus of attention, enabling the creation of new, more advanced visual effects, and higher performance in DirectX 12-optimized games. With the Game Ready driver, Maxwell and Kepler GPUs offer complete support for DirectX 12. Fermi-based GPUs will gain support for DirectX 12 titles later this year, around the arrival of the first wave of DirectX 12 content. And of course, well be ready and waiting with Game Ready drivers to add performance optimizations, SLI profiles, and much, much more.
    That sucks for anyone with Fermi hardware. At least they'll be getting DX12 support eventually, though.

    Ya, from Anandtech: "however the more important outcome of this article is that it confirms that Fermi DirectX 12 support is behind schedule"

    The two key FPS PC games in recent release are BF 4 and Hardline. I see on the GeForce forums they aren't working in Windows 10 with SLI configuration for any Nvidia hardware, Fermi, Kepler and even Maxwell. "Working on it".

    Nvidia, "been working with Microsoft for a long time on Direct X 12 to deliver Game Ready Drivers" certainly wasn't ready for Primetime with the FINAL build of Windows 10.

    Many on the Battlelog forums are suggesting keep evaluating from the Web and to wait months before deciding to move to Windows 10. We have up to a year I guess. Can't really argue with that.

    PS: just want to say thanks to all the insiders (Blackrose in particular on this thread) for all the feedback up to the launch of Windows 10.

    With W10 now out I suspect there will be lots of information related to my PC gaming interests in the "general public domain".

    I'm sure if I decide to move to Windows 10 I'll be back to check out one of Brink's fine tutorials on something, as he covers it all in detail.

    Thanks again. Signing out.

    Thanks for visiting TenForums. Glad I could help out. Hope Nvidia figures out the BF4/SLI thing, and hope to see you back here sometime soon.

    When I changed over to 10, my offline games were all checked one by one and all worked perfectly except one. My old copy of Freelancer (modded). After several attempts to reload, run, uninstall, reload etc. I was ready to give up. I tried one last attempt yesterday morning, but found an nvdia (yellow triangle) error in devices manager, but an update must have just occurred because it asked me to reboot 'to fix errors'.

    This I did and found that the yellow triangle had vanished from the video drivers and it now runs perfectly. I have some on line games via Steam, everything is fine, really pleased about that.

    I have 2 Gigabyte 760GTX-OC-4GD in SLI. I still have to down clock to avoid DirectX errors. Windows 7 55hz was required now Windows 10 needs 65hz. Battlefield 4 does run much smoother though in Windows 10 with higher frame rates, when I don't get directx errors. Yes I have the latest NVidia driver.

    I also noticed my Ram being used more with Battlefield 4. Windows 7 would use 6GB, Windows 10 is using 9-12GB depending on the map.

    Definitely a memory leak issue! Frame rates go crazy every time RAM and VRAM usage shoots up. Minimize to desktop and reopen stops it for a while. Video card usage jumps above 4GB when that is all I have. It even showed as using 5GB on the card. The system RAM would shoot up to 12-14 when I have 16GB ram. Didn't happen in Windows 7. Any thought out there. I have all the latest drivers. I am running SLI.

    Battlefield 4 has known issues with SLI with the latest Nvidia drivers. Manuel G. has stated on the GeForce forums that they are aware of the problem and are working on fixing it.
